BEST RATED TACKLING DEFENSIVE BACKS 2024 NFL Draft

2024 BEST RATED TACKLING DEFENSIVE BACKS

Lockdown defensive backs extend beyond pass coverage, and a critical aspect of their game is open-field tackling. Players like Eric Berry (Tennessee) and Tyrann Mathieu (LSU) established a collegiate legacy by not only being pass defense stalwarts but also by exhibiting impeccable tackling skills, limiting YAC (Yards After Catch) and neutralizing potential breakout runs.

Herein, explore the latest data that identifies those current defensive backs who are demonstrating superior tackling proficiency. Engage with metrics like tackle success rate, missed tackle percentage, and run-stop percentage to gain a holistic view of how these players are not merely defending passes but are crucial cogs in their team's run defense and ability to mitigate damage post-reception.
